Question about Bosch Dishwashers
Hi, I have had the Bosch SGS5002gb/01 for about 10 years it has worked perfectly until a few days ago when it would not drain and it left about 2 inches of water in the bottom of the unit,above the filter. I emptied the water using a cup, restarted it had flooded I leaned the dishwasher back to reset the pump. I ran it empty a couple of times without detergent and it worked fine. I loaded the washer and today tried it again and again it had not drained properly. Any ideas?

fault is with dishwasher. even if drain blocked, would not cause overfill.
possibly the pipe to sump from fill mechanism partially blocked

Check drain hose first.
If you do not find any blockage, then you will need to access the pump, remove pump hose and look for blockage in there.
If there is no blockage at all, then either the water level switch, a faulty pump, a wiring problem, or a faulty timer board can be cause the machine not draining.

A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual
reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point
where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household
drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the
hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting
the dishwasher again.
Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.
Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.
